VLOG: An Organ of Detox, The Skin
In this video, Haylie discusses the largest organ of detox: The Skin.
Here’s an easy, quick and affordable way to make your skin glow and flush toxins from your body. Best of all, you can do it in the comfort of your own home. Let me introduce you to Dry Skin Brushing! You may not have heard of it, but the benefits are more than skin-deep.
Simply stroking a natural-bristle brush over your skin touches off a healthy chain reaction:
- Dead skin is buffed away, encouraging cell renewal and perfecting the texture of your skin.
- Circulation intensifies, which helps your body flush away wastes.
- Your lymphatic system works better. Like a massage, skin brushing helps with lymphatic drainage.
Spas offer dry-brushing treatments to smooth lumpy, bumpy areas of the skin—especially on the butt and thighs—and to help cleanse and detox the body. But you can do it yourself at home. (Now is a great time to start, too—it’s a terrific way to detox from all of that holiday sugar and booze!)
How to dry brush your skin
Try dry brushing every day, before your shower or bath. Use long strokes. Always brush toward your heart. Start at the bottom of your feet, brushing up each leg. Then brush from your hands toward your shoulders. Finish by brushing your torso with upward strokes. Overlap your strokes, brushing each area several times. If you’re having a hard time picturing the dry-brushing technique, this demonstration video shows how quick and easy it is.
